Elevation from Command Line?

I haven't tried it. But intuitively it seems if you click Start > All
Programs, right-click Command Prompt, and choose Run As Administrator, you
should be good to go. I think you'll be a system Admin rather than a member
of the Local Admins group.

Hey there, anyone know how to run a command from CMD in elevated mode (or
whatever it's called..!)

For example, how would I run SFC /SCANNOW with elevated permissions direct
from the command line? I can't be bothered with doing all the
create-a-shortcut-and-tick-those-boxes things... ;)

Create a shortcut to cmd.exe and in the properties pick Always run as
administrator. Whenever you run this shortcut it will be elevated.

Thanks K - yup someone gave me this one earlier.

I'm most interested in knowing how to elevate from just one command tho - it
also seems to me to be the safer option, especially, for example, if you're
doing it from a command line batch script, or something...
